Service and Staff

Dinning staff was wonderful. They would just bring us extra food to try. Made us feel special and it was nice to try new things.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very nice ship to be 19yrs old. Everything was nice and clean. Every once in a while you would get a bad smell in hall ways. Smelled like sewage but not over powering. I would sail this ship again.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We had two rooms that connected. They were clean and good size. No complaints on that. The water in shower was ether to hot or to cold no in between for us. Windows was hard to see out of some time because of condensation.

Ship Tip

Bring water bottle. Pop up clothes hamper. Over door shoe hanger. Necklace thing for room card. If you do anything off ship a water bottle fan.

Ports Of Call

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Did dolphin encounter, buffet lunch and beach. Buffet wasn’t that tasty but dolphins and sea lion show was great.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

5 out of 5
Dzibilchaltun Mayan,Merida Tour with lunch. It was great. The lunch was great. Not a whole lot right off ship compared to Cozumel but authentic place to visit. Got to see how Mexico really is for some people. Take a tour. You’ll love it and appreciate what you have more.
